to the court of appeals by george w. bush in 2 thousand 5. he has a ba for brigham young university and the jd is from the university cool of law. most notably they were the proud parents of six children. they were at stanford two weeks ago for the conference and at least i don't know if it was us or the weather, but something enticed him to come back a second time. >> it's a pleasure to be here and my congratulations to the conference organizers and thanks to ed and barbara, but i wish -- i was out here two weeks ago with the comment that the d.c. surround worked. for those of you who are in the batherings, this is the obligatory panel that seems to be the drainage to federalist societies that organizers have everywhere. at least by the conservatives in power. the three inviting words in the constitution, the executive power. as the moderator of this distinguished panel, i plan on being seen more than heard, but i feel obliged to answer a question. judge silverman would want me to answer before going further. what are you doing on a panel about executive power. my colleague is on a circuit an
we have seen in the last ten years the presidents despite george w. bush's presidency trying to actually almost by themselves in foreign policy. domestic affairs, if you read the papers, there is not a lot of discussion about the role of the president in domestic affairs. you would be surprised to see the kind of president we had today in this area. they thought the president would be a check on congress and not somebody urging and pushing congress to enact the president's program. alexander hamilton said the executive is necessary to protect against the irregular and high-handed combinations that interrupt the ordinary coarse of justice. i love this phrase. the humors of the legislature. i guess this is why they elected that. you lock at the discussion of the veto power and the federalist papers, it's not talked about as this sword by the president to convince the congress to enact his or her program. it is discussed as the president to protect its own constitutional authorities and to furnish an additional security about the enaction of improper laws and laws that would be
. ronald reagan. let's go -- i mean every single president, george h.w. bush. >> it's a brutal job. they all leave broken. >> i mean look at obama. he's not broken but his hair is graying. they visibly age. >> bill clinton is not broken. >> oh, wait, i forget. bill clinton is not broken. you know why bill clinton is not broken because he refused to leave. >> he won't leave. >> bill clinton still in the hangar, four months later. >> they're broken when they leave but rehabilitate themselves. even nixon, you couldn't leave more broken than nixon but he becomes this age of saddle river, having journalists out to dinner, rewriting history books. even nixon can come back. there is life after the presidency if you handle yourself. >> history is like one of the reasons this is all so much fun and i think so important ultimately, is remember the way the founders described i think washington described the senate as the saucer in which -- >> the tea cooled. >> the tea cooled. >> that's what history. it takes our friend michael, says a rule, you can't write about a president in full until 25
system is more point than the structures that a republican congress was happy to give george w. bush authority. that was based on the u.n. resolution. i think if we're going to talk about checking and balancing then, i'm not sure how one does it, but to rely on congress vigorously to assert its own pe interrogato per interrogatoritives against the president of their own power doesn't work. it hasn't been accurate since 1800. >> i was going to say i don't think even people in congress want to fix the war powers resolution problem. it's a convenient symbol that congress was doing something about war power as a way to avoid doing the things that congress could do. you could cut off funds or not pay for any of the conflicts. libya might have been so small you might be able to wage the whole thing. the other thing is about the political party thing. kosovo is interesting because president clinton went to war, went beyond the 60-day clock. congress was controlled by the other party. one of the ten things in a contractor was repeal the war powers resolution. you had a case where president
and the candidates who win and watching george w. bush do this through two elections, express confidence and faith in america's future. now, there are r plenty of bromide patriotism in romney's speeches, but the core argument he has is negative. and this is very much the framework the democrats had in 2004 about a different problem, the war in iraq. then you had a president who said i know this is tough, but we've got to stick with it, stay the course and we're going to make it to victory. now, the fs a weird looking victory for him, but that was his sales pitch and you had john kerry saying this is terrible, a disaster. i don't know where i stand or where i did before or where i'm going to stand, but in any case, it's going really badly. people would rather have somebody saying i know this is tough, but i have a way out and america always finds its way out. that's where we're seeing in mirror image today. >> karen, as we said, it's a study in contrast today on the campaign trail and there's one area it's stark. just in terms of pure optic, how does an image like the one we saw of the president in
to be their presidential nominee to succeed president george w. bush, the guy who was supposed to win in '08, the guy who was the early beltway favorite was fred thompson. fred thompson who was an actor on "law and order" and who is a large man and had a very deep voice and who looksç very presidentialish from a distance. on tv. and i've always thought that the fred thompson mania of the 2008 presidential race, the sort of pundit mania over the prospects for fred thompson were largely based on what he looked like and he's a big guy and has this big great voice. in terms of his resume, what he was known for was being an actor on "law and order." he had been a lobbiest for decades on washington. that usually means you have represented some unpolitically correct clients. in his case some abortion rights clients when he was trying to run as an anti-abortion rights politician. in addition to bb a lobbyist and the guy on tv, he served one and a half terms in the u.s. senate. but honestly his time in the senate was characterized by no real accomplishment of any note. there's no fred thompson legislative achie
. that comes from a republican party operative who worked in the george w. bush white house saying that rush limbaugh is in fact a feared power broker throughout the republican party. mighty rush limbaugh was so upset by the fact of sandra fluke speaking truth to power that he decided he was going to take her down. he claimed that sandra's advocacy for contraceptive coverage made her a slut and a prostitute. he said she was having so much sex that she needs a whole lot of contraception and she wants other people to pay for it. think about that. mighty rush limbaugh doesn't seem to understand the birth control pill is not like viagra. [ laughter ] [ applause ] you don't take a birth control pill just before having sex like, oh, never mind. sandra fluke was not cowed by limbaugh's relentless three-day defamatory character assassination. in fact, just the opposite happened. women and men around the country were disgusted by limbaugh and in short order, he lost nearly 100% of his national advertisers. [ applause ] so, please, all of you join me in honoring this amazing champion, this role model,

of the george w. bush administration. has declared he is china's door mat. in a way no modern administration has been, mitt romney is calling him a door mat. he likes to make a big deal out of saying he as president would be more confrontational. mr. romney wrote on op ed saying he would take aggressive action against the second largest economy in the world. so aggressive he would start a war against the two greatest economies on earth. his plans were stated as a blunder. it was described as mr. romney's hulk policy. romney smash china. but for all mr. romney is turning green and shredding his shirts with biceps, when it comes to making real decisions about countries in the market place, mr. romney has not been all that big in confrontation in the real world. in his book no apology, president bush's design to stand up against china had done more harm than good. he called president obama's defense of american tire companies bad for the nation. so this is a test. this is an administration that even if you like what they have done has been not that great at chest bumping. rightly or wrongly, it's j
congress enacted and george w. bush signed in 2004. totally bipartisan effort to change what had been a 1947 dismodel. we passed the basic pillar for our intelligence and defense agencies in 1947, geared against the soviet union. and we never changed it until after 9/11 when it was clear that one, the soviet union ended in 1989 but two, the threats were completely different against our country. so the reform set up a joint command structure called the office 6 the directioner of national intelligence, across 16 intelligence agencies. and the idea is not to build a bureaucracy but to leverage their strength. and our intelligence capability is better. our national intelligence estimates which are the way we assess what is going on in different countries are much stronger than they were. and i think it would be much harder to make the mistake that we made on what is the destruction in iraq so we're better. the agencies are doing better. what we're missing is a very clear legal framework around our post 9/11 policies. we've never been able to do that because congress doesn't work very wel
of the leadership qualities that we want in a president. george w. bush whom we rarely invoke for anything positive, at least had a clarity of thought so people said we know what he thinks. and the rap on john kerry in '04 was the flip-flopping. >> romney is just following -- the weird thing is he's still having to play so much to his base. his entire base had the same 180 on roberts as well. so he's gotta go out there and he still for some reason, has not solidified his base. you cannot continue to talk to the tea party and the rest of america at the same time and not look crazy to one of them. >> right. >> you have to get to the point where you're above these kind of petty attacks on supreme court justice and say i don't agree with the decision but i'm not going to go attack john roberts because it is beneath me. he's sitting on the supreme court. the chief justice of the united states. but he's still stuck in those kinds of arguments and still playing to bill kristol the editorial page. here we are heading into july and

incorrect. a lot of the debt comes from the bush tax cuts, the drug benefit create created by george w. bush and from cleaning up the mess the republicans created and wall street created, but beyond that, mitt romney is an absolutely no position to talk about whittling the debt down when he's advocating a gigantic tax cut for the wealthy that he's not going to even pay for. so it's a both dishonest and hypocritical message. and blaming romney for having not a single new idea for bringing jobs back. not a single idea. >> what i see feeding that narrative, whether it's fact or fiction, we can discuss, is the supreme court's decision having been upheld as a taxes authority of the congress. i can tell you, i can answer the phone for a living. i host a radio program where i hear from people who say see that, i knew i was going to get whacked with a tax to pay for obamacare and largely, the people asserting that have health insurance and won't be subjected to a penalty. >> i heard the same thing from a friend of my sister's. at this point, you need to do an information campaign and just like bob w

years later, president clinton won re-election with 5.5% average. in 2004, republican george w. bush won re-election with 5 5.7%. president obama six-month unemployment rate average this year is at 8.2%. higher than any of the predecessors in 30 years. >>> construction employment, a major part of the economy stalled out in june. however, as chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel explains there is a lot more to the troubling numbers. >> president obama signed the $105 billion transportation package in to law late today. funding construction jobs. he said would otherwise be lost. >> this bill will keep thousands of construction workers on the job, rebuilding our nation's infrastructure. >> the legislation will fund road and transit project through the end of fiscal 2014. allowing state transportation departments to go forward with major infrastructure projects. though an industry economist says it may only stop job losses. >> you are not going to see immediate jump in highway employment. at least firms may hang on to workers whom otherwise they would have had to lay off. >> constru
, with his manufacturing ideas, yeah, absolutely. >> suarez: dem yatsic critics were very tough on george w. bush in the months following the recovery that began after 9/11. too few jobs, recovery too slow, job creation too shallow. are we in a different economic world now? isn't it just as fair a criticism as barack obama as it was of george work bush in the early part of this century? >> i think the difference there is that it's what i was just talk approximating about. i mean it's one thing for a president to not have a set of plans to get you from here to there, and here i thought mr. chen's discussion a second okay was very misleading. i don't think governo governor-- governor romney has any plans vis-a-vis job growthnd cay go through that in a second. the thing the president can say that is different is i, in fact, have a set of measures that independent people, you don't have to listen to me, listen the congressional budget office, to independent economists who scored this are saying, yeah, and it's actually not that complicated, if you provide some fiscal relief to state was have to
